We loved EVERYTHING! The only complaint is that the beds are VERY firm and the Junior Suites had 2 Double beds when it should be at least 1 Queen with 1 Double if not both Queen sized beds.

It's nice that they don't allow you to bring food from the restaurants to the beach. It is how they keep it so clean.

This was our first time going to DR and we decided to go to Puerto Plata because it was more convenient... and I LOVED IT! Some of the things i liked was that the hotel was only about 15-20 minutes from the Airport in Susua. The hotel facilities were neat. The room was clean and maintained daily. The views were... More

Beautiful hotel, paradise beaches, first-rate service, incredible food available at all hours, smiles on the faces of every staff member--from cleaning service to dinner service, and entertainment for all ages--water aerobics, pineapple bowling (for the kids), scuba diving, etc. My finacee and I just returned from our second trip to Gran Ventana, and I don't know if we can make...

Gran Ventana was quite a disappointment. All-inclusive does not really mean all inclusive. When we arrived, we were give a key to a room. When we arrived at the room, there was a naked man and another dress man in our room. We told them this was our room, to which they responded, "We are only using it for a... More

Liked the smaller size of the resort. Can't say enough about the wonderful staff at this Resort. The Beach chairs need replacing.

My boyfriend and I purchased a Groupon for this resort and we had a fabulous time! Our room was clean, the food and drinks were great, and we had such a memorable trip. We recommend taking the speedboats to Paradise Island too! That was a highlight of the trip.

In all of Playa Dorada, Gran Ventana always comes out on top. Friendly staff, great food, a great beach bar and luch bar at the beach. The water is calmer at Gran Ventana, sheltered around the corner and in the bay. It does get a bit warm as there is no breeze through the complex, but it's mush better than... More

So you know how every town has the mall that used to be nice but now there is a new mall down the road that is way nicer and everyone goes there instead? Yeah, Puerto Plata has become the ghetto mall of the D.R. The room is just that, a room. It's comparable to a Best Western and is nothing... More
